Jack Eliot: We're not athletes, we're baseball players.
Toward the end of the movie when the Dragons are facing the Giants for the Pennant, Hammer is up to bat and get a hit. When you see him round first base, they show a picture of the dugout, where you will find him holding a large hammer. It's tough to be at bat and on the bench.
Jack's home run streak and the fight with the Hiroshima Carp pitcher who hit him were based on 2 actual events by 2 differnt American ex-Baseball players playing in Japan, Randy Bass and Warren Cromartie respectively.
